University of Birmingham, School of Mathematics, Combinatorics

Alberto Espuny Díaz

I am a PhD student at the University of Birmingham under the supervision of Daniela Kühn and Deryk Osthus. My research interests lie in combinatorics, particularly in extremal and probabilistic combinatorics and their interface with computer science, as well as in additive combinatorics. Between 2010 and 2015 I completed my Bachelor's degrees in Mathematics and Aerospace Engineering at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Spain). I also completed a Master's degree in Advanced Mathematics and Mathematical Engineering between 2015 and 2016.
